because it's not fair, but the republican young breed aren't even as cool as john mccain. mccain is pretty cool as a personality. these guys, this new crowd. the key word in what john mccain said there was another, another cudgel. >> yeah. >> there's been -- in other words, the democrats have had the upper hand now for weeks now, if not months, and he's just saying -- when he said they've got more cudgels to beat us up with, that told me everything. >> it's even better because the president to some extent stands on the sidelines while they self-cudgel. they're beating themselves up. >> i think that's a six -- >> the president i'm perhaps belatedly coming to realize is really deft at using the outside game, which is how he started, social media, et cetera, using public sentiment and the outside game to pressure the congress without doing it himself directly in a way that divides the other party and forces them to come to him. he makes them come to him because -- he's for the most part hands off. we're saying why isn't he lbj or lincoln? that's not how this president operates. he operates wi
as children. but another gang of eight member, senator john mccain dismisses the white house claims today of innocence and the release of that draft. now the awkward walk back of the president's initiative. senator mccain questions the president's desire to actually, sincerely fix the broken legal and illegal immigration system. >> leaks don't happen in washington by axa. this raises the question that many of us continue to wonder. does the president really want a result or does he want another -- lou: a central question in all of this. if the white house had nothing to do with the leak, the president's chief of staff on sunday morning talk shows to issue ultimatums like this. >> he says it is denim arrival of proposed. let's make sure does not. let's make sure that the group up there, the gang of eight, makes good progress on these efforts as much as they say they want to which is exactly what we intend to do to work with them. lou: the $85 billion in spending cuts and the sequestration are now just ten days away from going into affect. the house and senate stand in recess. the president
conservative senator, john mccain's pick for the cabinet. as soon as you get a little bit of obama on you they can't work with you. and it is their problem, a lot of us have to deal with it but it is fundamentally a failure of the republican party and it is why they're going to continue to lose elections in and perhaps past the obama era. >> paul ryan wanted a piece of this anti-immigration obama stuff, so let's listen to him. >> leaking it out does set things in the wrong direction. the things we have to ask ourselves, particularly with the white house is president obama looking for a bipartisan law? and without addressing future flow, by giving advantage who cut in front of line for immigrants who came here legally, not dealing with border security adequately, that tells us he is looking for a bipartisan advantage, and not a solution. >> steve, it tells us it is not actually a complete legislative proposal. >> it is a starting point, and again, one of the republican's favorite lines in attacking it. they switch back and forth. a favorite line against obama, is that he has not been speci
.s. military. >> michael: unbelievable. after those comments even senator john mccain told him to tone it down. and mccain has bipartisan support on this one. democratic senators dianne feinstein and claire mccaskill compared him to joseph mccarthy who accused american citizens of being communist. but toning it down is not in his repertoire. he was at it again. just to give you flavor for the place, this is the poster for larue tactical where the senator chose to call president obama's gun control initiatives wrong. those are mild from what he said in the past. cruz argued that the gun show loophole does not exist. he's a loophole truther. >> there actually isn't the so-called gun show loophole. that does not exist. >> michael: reminder, this man has degrees from harvard and princeton. clearly republicans have not learned from the last election. when americans made it clear that they do not reward crazy. cruz is now headline the super bowl of the conservative right. craze rewards crazy. he was at ted cruz's speech today and he comes to us from austin. welcome to the war room. >> great to be he
a result? or does he want another coddule to beat up republicans. >> reporter: senator john mccain reacting to a usa today report that the president wants to create a special new visa just for illegal immigrants, letting them stay in the us while waiting for permanent legal status, and even letting immigrants with criminal records stay in the country if they haven't spent more than a year in prison. >> we are doing exactly what we said we'd do, which is we'll be prepared in the event that the bipartisan talks going on on the hill, which by the way we're aggressively supporting. >> reporter: at first glance, the proposals go beyond what the president himself laid out less than a week ago. >> the time has come to pass comprehensive immigration reform. >> reporter: in his state of the union address, president obama said illegal immigrants should not benefit over legal immigrants in pursuing citizenship. >> a path that includes passing a background check, paying taxes and a meaningful penalty, learning english and going to the back of the line behind the folks trying to come here legally. >> re
, we've been kvetching and bitching and complaining for the last week or so about john mccain, you know, loser from 2008 who is still the face of the republican party. you never see mitt romney. talk about a loser. but mccain and they keep putting him out there on the sunday shows every sunday, every show. every day every show. overexposure for a guy who's got nothing more -- nothing to say anymore. and talk about people who have nothing to say anymore, here's the big one. cpac conservative political action committee which has its huge gathering of conservatives it is a big event here in washington, d.c., every year in march. this year, yesterday they announced the headliner the keynote speaker for this year's cpac event, sarah palin. >> no! >> bill: talk about the number one loser. here she is, four years ago -- i'm sorry, last year at cpac -- >> at the 1975cpac, he laid out a blueprint for rebuilding the g.o.p. under a banner of full color. and ever since then, cpac has been the rally for conservative action and that's why i'm glad to be here today with all of you conservative activis
, he did not. he realized that he could outraise and spend john mccain in 2008 and so he went back on his words there. he took corporate money into the inaugural committee. i don't care that he's flipped his campaign into a c-4 and going to do political operation toss help his agenda, but let's be honest about it. instead, he's a hypocrite and now, his left wing, you know, allies who have been very supportive of him over the last several years are now coming out to say, well, he really shouldn't do this. but, the hypocrisy is so thick, it's dripping, it's kind of entertaining. >> and citizens united whether you could spend money on elections and a candidate, right, and this -- and this group is going to take money to push an agenda, to push policies which there is a difference in that legally, but this group. >> oh, certainly. >> megyn: but this group, you refer to it as the c-4, that's not-- that's a tax exempt organization and there are already some republican lawmakers saying, all right, if you're going to take unlimited corporate donations into a tax exempt entity that exists s
illegal immigrants. senator john mccain is accusing the white house of trying to kill this. >> leaks don't happen in washington by accident. this raises the question that many of us continued to wonder about. does the president really want a result or does he want another cajole to beat up republicans? >> reporter: marco rubio is critical to the talks to try get a deal. he called the president's plan half baked because he doesn't think the eight year time frame in which it would take illegal immigrants to get on a path of citizenship, he doesn't think that is long enough. they are fighting on over the details on policy. >> shep: white house says republicans are overplaying this? >> president put these details not with the leak from u.s.a. today and white house says it didn't leak anything. nonetheless, he gave a speech last month where he laid out many of the details on immigration. whether it looked out this weekend or not, he has put that on the table. his new chief of staff was on three sunday talk shows saying the president's only putting this plan together as plan "b" hoping congres
impugned the patriotism of the nominee. >> cruz denied that insisting he was asking questions. even john mccain who opposing hagel's nomination didn't buy it. >> senator hagel is an honorable man. he has served his country, and no up with on this committee at any time should impugn his character or integrity. >> that only had another liberal piling on cruz. >> this guilt by association reminds us of senator joe mccarthy. >> they see cruz as -- [ inaudible ] cruz, whose father was fortured in castro cuba is seen as charismatic hispanic of princeton and can help the g.o.p. appeal to minorities. cruz made his presence felt in a short time by the senate stap dards. the attack proof of his short-term impact but too early to figure out what will happen in six years whether it hurts or helps. right now, liberals are blasting him. that adds to preexisting buzz of important latino senator. >> bret: what do you think of senator cruz? let me know on twitter. follow me at @brettbaier. update now to a story we have been following on the channel. supreme court says an american service member has the right to
. there's a sacred cow that the republicans have. it involves the republicans. when you have john mccain out there and lindsey graham saying this is absolutely -- if it goes through, it's not universal embraced by republicans in washington. and like you say, to the point it looks like it's going to go forward with the sequester. i guess is this a two-part gain by the republicans where they let the sequester go through. and three weeks later we have this continues resolution that comes up and maybe they see an opportunity there with the sequester. they can have their showdown with the president and then get rid of the cuts anyway? do you see a possibility of that? >> i think you're going to see some resolution of this after the cuts go into that for a couple days. the republicans have two schools of thoughts. one is deep concern that that has. part the majority of is reflected by the republicans what's the fuss. we're talking 5% here. everybody ought to be able to suck it up with a 5% cut, including with the defense department. i think he represents the majority thinking on the republican
'm reading it. i want to. yes. when the soviets like john mccain tells you you belch too much, soak and spew too much fire, you know you've got a problem. >> she likes it. that's a bad day. that's a bad day. >> this is not painful for her. >> like three, four days later, she's still laughing. >> when someone says something about you, that's a bad day. ted cruz, a republican freshman in the senate out front and center in his republicans' efforts to josh chuck hagel has a problem. he's an honoree piece of work, just six weeks from arrival, he's already known for nay saying and his nitpicking and his itch to upbraid lawmakers who are vastly senior to him who have sacrificed more than he has and who deserve a measure of respect. or at least courtesy that isn't his me kirks er. he was head of the harvard debate team. >> princeton or harvard. >> a very bright guy. >> a little too big for his britches. >> people that knew him before said you would like him. >> he has been kicking shins, being comparely rude and i guess maybe it's all a marketing ploy to raise the most money among conservatives nati

saying that plan would be dead on arrival if it were presented to congress. john mccain accusing the white house of intentionally leaking that draft proposal. that's an assertion the white house has pushed back against. this is a delicate dance, martin, and this sort of ruffled feathers could give someone like marco rubio some cover to spar publicly with the president but then to continue to work on immigration reform behind the scenes and not necessarily have to own this as president obama's immigration reform proposal if, in fact, they do come up with something. i think what's significant is that after this weekend and that leaked draft proposal, no one walked away from the table. by all accounts everyone is still moving forward on immigration reform. of course, it's still an uphill battle because lawmakers are divided on some of the key issues. >> kristin, thank you. >>> coming up, herman cain was actually right about something. seriously. stay with us. so you say men are superior drivers? yeah. then how'd i get this...

not know how to respond to john mccain and other critics. at the same time a lot of people are suggesting that ted cruise's attack on him and this continual, you know, lindsey graham now saying let's take a look at the rutgers speech and now they're demanding five years of back finances, not two years, which is a new standard as carl -- >> i think to be clear, i think the standard that lindsay graham and others are doing for finances for the secretary of defense is not one that their party's nominee for the white house to be commander in chief could or would have met just a few months ago when he was running for the presidency. remember, mitt romney's big excuse on giving us more information on kaymen investments is i filled out all that is required in the financial disclosure forms. now lindsay graham wants i think every private thought that chuck hagel has ever ever had and every public word that he has ever uttered. look, i think it is shameful what he is having to go through on that side of this. they're not questions that are holding this up based on what his thoughts are on iraq or
